guys are writing $10 million check, giving them mr. romney supporters. and basically, they all have just the same argument. they all say the same thing. they say the economy is bad and it's obama's fault. >> greg: so a andrea, obama bashing negative ads is like the pope demeaning catholicism. >> andrea: i can't believe he is doing this with a straight face. he's gone so far over hope and change. he uses class warfare. mitt romney, comb, nerf bat, knife fight. he was accused this week of murder. you know what his response was? i'm disappointed. if someone accused you or me or us of murder we'd lash out more than that. >> greg: it's happened to me. >> andrea:ly say this, the
5:01 pm
media is jumping on board. they are riding shotgun. this week, "newsweek" jonathan alter echoed the same sentiment saying under romney hundreds and thousands of people will die. they print this as the truth. then obama gets in front of a crowd and pretends like i had nothing to do with this. i hate this. >> greg: now mitt is not just a murder, a mass murder. >> andrea: and he doesn't care. he doesn't care. >> greg: if he cared about it, it would be different. so k.g., here is the thing. should romney rely on attack dogs like sununu or become an attackdog? there is a theory he should stay out of this. >> kimberly: there is enough time to train him between now and the enext? you either have it in you or you don't. he needs to step up. that's the rhetoric and the action the public wants. especially the republicans and to motivate his base. he is going to get them out and turn some of the numbers around, there is still time to do it. they will have to hear something from him that is not enough to have it from the v.p. or sununu or someone
5:02 pm
else. >> greg: there is bad polling for obama. not a lot. there is a gallup poll on the job approval, bob. had him at 43%, 51% disapproval. there it is. is it worrying given the context of the other polls? >> bob: it's not worrisome. good poll. >> greg: i mentioned it at the start. >> bob: oh, you did. okay. i want to agree with kimberly. one thing here for a candidate, you either do have it in you or you don't. maybe it would move him to get a v.p. nominee to do that for him. i don't know that. the fact is this is not an easy game we're playing here. all this whining by republicans about pour mitt and killing people. this is a tough ballgame we're playing. obama gets hit very hard from every direction. >> greg: now you're whining. >> bob: i'm not whining at all. i come from a school of politics this is a normal situation. >> eric: i beg to dish with you. you mentioned it earlier today. you said it's politics. i don't think anyone has gone to these extent. he's a murder, felon, tax
5:03 pm
cheat. >> greg: mass murderer now. >> eric: responsible for cancer death. >> bob: i heard that in a sheriff's race. >> eric: what we really should talk about, white board -- sorry, not trying to cover you. romney shouldn't do stuff like this. don't touch it. healthcare premium since obama took over, with obamacare, gone up 20%. you know what that cost america? $2 trillion. $2 trillion so far and counting. gas prices up 100% under obama. that cost us $8 trillion. how about this one. household net worth, down 35%. down 35%. that cost us $5 trillion. under obama so far, at a minimum, $8 trillion of worth has left the country. thanks, bob. where are you? camera six. mitt, get back to the economy. that is how you're going to win. not the other games. >> bob: all housing values
5:04 pm
are fallen because of obama? that is a new one. new low. >> greg: we're in the saying he killed anybody. >> andrea: if you watch romney, he does make a lot of the same points that you made. but he is not breaking through the noise. he is making the arguments. he is not playing dirty or taking the low road. he is a world guy. barack obama has no problem lying and pulling auz these. romney is not getting in the mud with him. that is the danger. >> kimberly: how does he win? >> andrea: if you fight with a skunk you both come out smelling. >> bob: u are assuming that mitt romney is clean on. this the fact of the matter is they closed that steel plant, they did it, loaded it with debt and took it for the investors and themselves. you can't make a connection to him, he was directly responsible for this woman dying, i understand that. >> eric: that is what the ad is. the husband is saying mitt romney closed the plant. my wife died. see the connection? >> bob: romney did close the
5:05 pm
plant. >> eric: his wife did fact die. wow! there's a good connection. >> bob: alder said there is a truth in that. >> greg: i want to run, jay carney talked about an ad. i'll roll that and then i'll go to you, kimberly. you look great today. >> kimberly: thank you. >> greg: go to the president to defend and explain his policy. defending them when a campaign ad with millions and millions of dollars behind it, as opposed to zero dollars behind it. being broadcast around the country. paid for, produced by the romney campaign. cat goricly false and blatantly dishonest about the president's policy position. >> greg: kimberly? >> kimberly: i'm going to do the thinking and the speaking for you. >> greg: thank you so much. >> kimberly: what i think overall and the message was made today very clearly by top romney aides and campaign headquarters. they feel that this rhetoric the way that the president, the administration, his
5:06 pm
campaign has behaved is diminishing the office of the presidency. ultimately, we will see, i believe, this will backfire. we have to get the polling, the tracking numbers in to see what impact if any the disingenuous, lying, desperate tactics by the obama campaign if it will backfire. i don't think the american people will like this. i don't think they think it's politics as usual. >> bob: something is sticking on him. do you think romney's ads are a soft bean bag ads he is running here? the fact is on taxes for example, they should -- romney is hiding stuff. we know that. >> andrea: we don't know that. >> bob: we do. >> kimberly: no, we don't. >> bob: absolutely. i have a good source. >> greg: they are back tracking. first people who work for harry reid now. they say it's not a republican. i didn't say that. >> --learly are on -- >> andrea: how would a coworker get the taxes? former b abin colleague, i'm your colleague and i wouldn't access to your taxes.
5:07 pm
>> bob: by the way, i talked to the chairman of the republican national committee, to tell him i was sorry about what i said. we had a long talk about this. he said that harry reid is a dirty liar. which means that you must know what he has got for taxes. otherwise you wouldn't say he's a liar. chairman has never seen the taxes. nobody else has either. >> eric: can we make a point because mitt romney doesn't release his taxes, doesn't mean he is cheating on his taxes. >> bob: why doesn't he release them? >> eric: he paid a lot of taxes and may not want to bring it out. i will tell you, though, i agree with you. just release them. get it out there. even if it's the money you made, be proud you know how to use the tax code. >> greg: bottom line, mitt has to step up. >> bob: step up. >> andrea: he's running like an incumbent. >> bob: good point. he is running like an incumbent. at this stage of the game, not
5:08 pm
that far out. he has yet to get people an idea about who he is. and the people know who obama is. a lot of them don't like him. but romney has to respond or paint a picture for himself or get someone like chris christie who will go after romney. >> kimberlyafter -- go after obama. >> kimberly: there is still time. >> bob: absolutely. romney had a bad week in the press it will turn and i guarantee you obama will have a bad week or two. >> kimberly: or three or four. >> bob: not that many. >> greg: coming up, holder announced he won't prosecute wall street over the 2008 financial crisis. is it because the boss needs the campaign cash? or is it because their boss needs their campaign cash? wait, those are the same things, eric. i guess we know the answer to that. ♪ ♪ this is new york state.
